Continuous painting is by far the most effective way to improve creativity and image making skills. Lisa’s two-day workshop combines demos, in-class assignments and individual instruction to teach students techniques to create fresh, deliberate marks. Lisa will share examples of how the discipline of daily painting produces personal growth. Using acrylic paint (oil painters are welcome too!) students will discover approaches to simplify the process of painting and ways to stay inspired and motivated. The class will delve into the principles of design, composition, value and color. We will examine color mixing, mark making and personal voice. Lastly we will discuss practical strategies to painting every day (or almost every day). Please note: if painting in oil, please use Gamsol only.
Lisa Daria Kennedy grew up along the northeast edge of the Hockomock Swamp in Massachusetts. Since 2009, she has committed to an on-going daily painting project. As a young adult cancer survivor, she discovered living is not just surviving. Each painting seeks to give a voice to the fiber of the everyday.
Kennedy received a BA from Roger Williams University, a BFA and MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Currently she is the Design Editor for the literary publication, Mount Hope and an Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA.
